Ivan, sorry this got so heated. I, at least, was irritated than I should have been.

I'll complain and mercilessly make fun of the figures you like, but I'd still play with them. If you're ever out my way, get hold of me (via my site) and we'll torture you with at least one good plastic game and I'll make sure you have as many stands of prone figures as I can muster. grin

I, at least, was MORE irritated than I should have been.

LOL, sounds good. I promise I won't use hammers to move your minis either! I'll bring a full platoon of pumpkinheads and it can be a battle royale!

So, after reading this conversation and taking a look at the scale calculator link -- why don't we just call miniatures that are roughly 28-32mm high 1/56?

Because figure height is not the same as scale. Scale should be proportional all the way around. Most 28mm-32mm are clearly not proportional in all dimensions, they're just 28mm-32mm tall.

With that type of criteria, it would be a chore to find many figures (Tom Meier, the Perry's) that fit any scale. Heck, most 1/72s would be out too. Not to mention several lines of 54mm (1/32, 1/35) I've seen.
